Des Plaines Condos & Townhouses
Condo, short for condominium, is a private residence that's typically located in a building with other units, but there are detached condos that are located in community-like settings too. Condos are often described as apartments or townhouses that are owned rather than rented. While this is an accurate description in many cases, condos also have some unique features such as common areas shared with other condo owners (i.e. backyards, swimming pools, etc). Condominium owners typically pay a fee for the maintenance of these additional features.
Condos are often located in multi-story buildings-even skyscrapers. A single unit might encompass part of a single story or even part of two stories depending on its design. People who don't want to be bogged down by landscaping or other routine maintenance often prefer condo living to other types of home ownership. It's possible to find condos that range dramatically in size from economical one-bedroom units to spacious, luxurious models that feature multiple bedrooms and bathrooms.
